Lately my forgetfulness is happening more often. I searched for reasons for forgetfulness and some that stood out were: tiredness and stress. It is a very odd feeling when someone asks you to remember something or you do a certain action but then it is completely wiped out the moment your focus is on something else though you recall someone told you to do something when they remind you of it. It means I processed the information but it was not followed by the action I need to do based on that information. My brother gets exasperated when he tells me to get him a tooth pick so I tell him yes then I go and come back having no idea I have to bring anything to him, so he asks me about the toothpick and I’m like “oh, right you told me you need one”, I did that several times. I would recall only at that moment I need to bring it. 😕
Another incident that was sort of funny but annoying at the same time was when I was having a soft drink and the bottle with the cup were with me. I went to throw the bottle in the trash then I notice something like a glass cup in the trash I pick it up and say: “who threw a good glass in the trash?!” then my mind reminds me I had a glass in my hand when I look at my hand it is gone then I realize it was me who threw it! 😯 😳
Yes I have been tired and stressed lately and it has been affecting the weakest point I have which is my memory, wasn’t good in the first place. Even though I have been waiting for the stress to end for the past five years insha’Allah it will, I’m sure it will so I ask Allah SWT to give me more patience to be able to get through it, ameen.
